I thought I would start posting "sneak peeks" of some of the things I've been doing with my Spider. Since I play with cars for a living, I am in a position to do things that most people don't have the resources or ability to do. In this case, I wanted to share something I've been working on - upgrading the turbo. Here is a "spy shot" of the new rotating assembly.

Sneak peaks are always fun ;)

But I'm in to know what the goal is meant to be. Can't wait to see what the end result is though and what supporting modifications you make

With the turbo, I am working on more responsiveness (reduced lag) with better mid-range. All else being equal, a lighter weight billet compressor wheel will spool quicker and flow more air per revolution. Most tuners try concentrating on big HP numbers but in the real world response is king. As with most modifications, it is the whole "package" not just components. I will start posting other mods soon.

What is the source of the part? You scan/cnc yourself or is it an off the shelf item?
